. >> understood. do you have reason to believe the older brother, tamerlan, was the leader in this and that dzhokhar may have been the follower? can you hear me, commissioner? we have lost the commissioner temporarily. while we try to re-establish that connection, we're going to continue our conversation, and with so many questions still unanswered, we'll come back to the commissioner when we can. so many questions still unanswered about the terror plot and how to protect our homeland, we've invited two congressional leaders on national security to discuss what happens now. dianne feinstein is chair of the senate intelligence committee, congressman pete king is chair of the house committee on counterterrorism, and he joins us live from new york. i'm sorry. i've got him in my ear. senator, congressman, hold on. we're going to go back to the police commissioner. do you have a sense whether the older brother tamerlan was the leader in this, and dzhokhar somehow followed him into the conspiracy? >> any information along those lines is based upon conjecture at this point in time
, when i saw like it says, this might be tamerlan. and, again, might be. and i clicked on that and there is this click, and, by the way, i went in there also, you know, some time ago, and i thought to myself, what an ugly boy found in that clip. that's, you know, even i went in there because, you know, in youtube, there is always something pop up. you watching something like, you know, the secrets, listening to that, and there is something in it unrelated will come up and then it goes on and on and on and on. and then you're just, you know, being -- have interest just to see what shift is that. sometimes there is a lot of it. what is that? you click on it and i heard it this morning, this morning. and i thought, if i was there, why wouldn't just, you know, just out of curiosity tamerlan wouldn't go in there also. >> would you say your nephews were devout practicing muslims? >> he was not devout practicing. but just recently maybe two years ago he started praying five times a day, which is, i don't see anything bad in it, you know? it takes off your mind, five times, you

roots in the chechnya region of russia. older brother tamerlan visited dagestan in 2012 a region in southern russia where his father and mother still live. in an interview with "the wall street journal" their mother said tamerlan had given your boxing and drinking and smoking as he turned to a religious life and told the paper he phoned her the night he died saying, quote, the police, they have started shooting at us. they are chasing us. telling her he loved her before the phone went silent. and his uncle who lives in maryland says he believes the older brother became radicalized in cambridge and not overseas and eventually drew in his younger brother but lawmakers say more questions about their past need to be answered. >> we believe they may have traveled on an alias to get back to his home country and that seven months, six and a half months or so becomes extremely important. so you know he had some radicalization before he left, you know he probably didn't travel on his own name or some variation of his own name, and when he comes back, he has a renewed interest in that radi

believe dzhokhar and his 26-year-old brother, tamerlan, placed two pressure cooker bombs on boylston street around the marathon finish line. tamerlan died friday in a shootout with police. dzhokhar is being treated for gunshot wounds. despite being listed in serious condition, the judge said i find that the defendant is alert, mentally competent and lucid. cbs news learned that investigators questioned him at his bedside and he told them he and his brother acted alone in order to carry out the marathon bombings. our sources say the tsarnaev brothers read jihadist websites but were apparently not part of a terrorist group. because tsarnaev is a united states citizen, they decided to charge him as a civilian and not an enemy combatant. >> since 9/11 we have used the federal court system to convict and incarcerate hundreds of terrorists. >> reporter: late monday evening federal investigators swarmed an area behind a cambridge business where the father and tsarnaev used to work on cars. officials placed a tarp over the scene to keep the search private but they were filmed carrying out a

will include inquiry into not only the immediate circumstances of the crime, but so who funded tamerlan tsarnaev's month-long so he journal abroad in 2012 and his comfortable lifestyle. did he have a supportive network? what training did he and perhaps his younger brother receive in the use of weapons? where did the elder of the two learn to make the suicide vest he reportedly wore? the investigation should include as well a deep dive into tamerlan's radicalization. the islamist references in the brother's social media communications and the jihadist websites they visited. will the investigation probe as well the f.b.i.'s own questioning of tamerlan two years ago at the behest of an unspecified foreign government, presumably russia, over his involvement with jihaddy websites and other activities? tamerlan tsarnaev is the fifth person since 9/11 who has participated in terror attacks after being questioned by the f.b.i. e was preceded by nidal hasan, drone casualty anwr an all i can, abdul hakim muhammad, born carlos he willon bledsoe, -- leon bledsoe, who murdered an army recruit in lit

on the information that it received about tamerlan tsarnaev, the older brother. and did not find terrorist activity, domestic or foreign. as for the president, you heard him say on friday, and i think it merits repeating -- i don't have it here, but it merits repeating in that he called for answers to a number of questions, as i said earlier: why this was done, what the motivations were, how it was done, any possible associations that the suspects may have had. and all of this is being investigated. and i think that you absolutely can expect that all the agencies involved as part of the broader investigation are examining these issues. >> well, i think we agree with what some of the coauthors of the bill -- including, i believe, senators mccain and graham and rubio -- have said, reasons why we need is because it will enhance when implemented our national security. and it is another reason why we need to move forward with this very important bipartisan legislation. that is certainly our view. >> are you worried that the effort may lose some momentum now because of this? >> well, i will simply say t
insight from tamerlan's wife. seen over the weekend leaving the family apartment. a rhode island native, she converted to islam and changed her name from katherine to karina. her family lawyer said monday, she was shocked to learn of her husband's role and had no idea until the fbi first released those surveillance pictures of him and named him a suspect. in fact, the lawyer says, the wife doesn't speak any russian and didn't really know what was going on. as to the younger brother's claims and statements to the fbi, investigators don't necessarily take at face value all that he has said. he has every reason to try to minimize his own role as the investigation into possible ties to overseas groups in russia remains a central focus of the case, george. >> brian, talk about living double-lives. we know that the younger brother was out partying on wednesday night. now we have learned more about where the older brother, tamerlan, was the day before the shootout. >> reporter: exactly. on that thursday, the day the fbi released his surveillance photo, he was at home taking care of his infant

cnn the dead suspect identified as tamerlan sarnias, age 26. the one being sought is sfwlnch zokar sarnias. i'm probably botching the pronunciation of those names. one of the things we know, these procedure brothers are from chechnya. doesn't mean they were radicalized from chechnya at all. it could be they came here, self-radicalized. all that is is the ethnicity. >> phil, what can you tell us about the situation in chechnya, russian/chesh nkn russian/chechen relations. >> the situation in chechnya is reasonably stable. chechnya and the region around it has been the source of an islamist insurgency for something close to 20 years now. two brutal wars in chechnya to put down an islamist separatist movement which it has effectively done. ever since putting an end to separatist ambitions from people who wanted to establish their own chechen state, break away from russia, russia crushed that movement, but there is an ongoing insurgency with chechen fires, dwithin the region, islamist insurgents and terrorists, who have been regularly staging attacks, brutal, effective attacks in mosco
whether the elder son tamerlan, actually did meet someone suspicious. we know that he was with his father. his father has spoken at length about both sons actually. he did confirm the man did come out and visit and stayed with them. both parents have actually said that they believe both sons, the 26-year-old tamerlan, now deceased, and the 19-year-old dzhokhar, the one who's in custody in the hospital, they say that they were framed. and the mother has actually accused the fbi of regularly harassing the family. she says because they are chechens, ethnic chechens. now, the parents have been living more recently in dagestan which is in the north caucuses region. now, this is a very troubled area. it's a small russian republic, but it's neighboring chechnya. both of these areas have seen a lot of conflict, particularly an active separatist group in dagestan right now, there's a mission taking place in the area to clean up what the government says is a guerrilla group. now, the mother, of course, has described her sons as good people and that they were persecuted because they were chechens an
brother, tamerlan died overnight. the bthhokharaev, is still lose, setting down transportations and schools in and around boston. we will keep updated with news and briefings as they are warranted. the news of the morning was also part of the briefing at the state department. secretary john kerry meeting with mexican foreign minister talked about the boston marathon investigation. this is about teen minutes. -- this is about 15 minutes. >> good morning, everybody. -- excuse me -- allergy season -- before we begin i want to say as a father and grandfather, my thoughts are of course and my home town right now in boston, where events are still unfolding in the entire city. the entire city is in lock down. we continue to learn every moment about the terror attack on monday and the pursuit of justice that is following it. it is fair to say that this entire week we have been in a direct confrontation with evil, nd i want to congratulate and thank all law-enforcement authorities for the job they have been doing on behalf of our citizens. in the past few days we have seen the best and w
: the about how the older brother tamerlan tsarnaev, this issue with the fbi impacted his immigration status. guest: we will learn more about this. it appears that the russian government was concerned about him. he had gone back to russia for six months in 2011 for about six months. the russian government was clearly somewhat concerned about his activities and alerted the fbi in the united states to keep an eye on him when he returned home. what has come out is the fbi did interview him and did a cursory investigation and decided there was no cause for concern. i suspect there will be a big focus on that as the investigation proceeds, why did the fbi not follow up on that. you can come up with plausible explanations. the relationship between russian law enforcement and u.s. law enforcement has not been very good over the years. so maybe it was the russian warnings were discounted. it's not clear this necessarily would have been an immigration issue. he had a green card and was entitled to come back and forth freely from the united states. if information had come out through the fbi investiga
to the one in the surveillance photos he was allegedly wearing. investigators also want to question tamerlan tsarnaev's wife. the couple initially met at a nightclub. she later converted to islam, dropped out of college and had a child with him. her attorney has said that she had no suspicions that her husband might be plotting an attack. hundreds of people stood in silence at copley square at 2:50 p.m. one week after the bombings. president obama marked the moment of silence from the white house. the u.s. senate held a similar tribute on capitol hill. >>> it is still unclear what impact the boston bombings will have on the immigration debate in congress but the topic of national security is clearly playing a more rom neprominent n the discussion. things got tense on capitol hill yesterday when senator chuck schumer sparred with republican senator chuck grassley about the future of the legislation. take a look. >> a few ways to improve the bill, offer an amendment when we start mark-up in may and let's vote on it. i say that particularly to those who are pointing to what happened, the terrib
. senator grassley actually rought this up, again, how tightened up security. 's clear that tamerlan tsarnaev, they had no record of him going to russia or coming back because his name was misspelled. by a place where we don't have regulations, a foreign airline. under our bill, everything would have to be pass -- passport or machine-read that so type of mistake could not occur. if our bill were law, isn't it a pretty safe guess that the authorities would have known that tsarnaev went to russia and came back? >> if i might, there are redundancies now in the system so there was a ping on the outbound to customs. this is my understanding, this has been kind of changing picture, but even regardless of that, anything that makes a requirement for machine-readable gets manual inputting out of the system, imprombings security. >> all right. ok. thank you, mr. chairman. >> thank you. >> thank you. it was a revelation to go down on the border. we actually watched and illegal border crossing while we were there. >> and an apprehension. >> as you hear. and an apprehension. a quick one, too. >>
